Appliances

Full size appliances such as washing machines, dryers, dishwashers and refrigerators are designed to have long functional lifespans, which is partly why brand new appliances come with a hefty price tag. Before disposing of your old appliances, make the effort to repair them to extend their useful life, or if still in working condition, consider transferring ownership of them to someone in need, or a local nonprofit. If you want to save money while upgrading your appliances, research manufacturers that offer incentives to trade in your appliances for newer ones.

Appliances are banned from disposal at County Refuse Disposal Sites. County Refuse Disposal sites offer appliance recycling for a fee.

Residential garbage company customers in certain areas are provided with bulky item collection. Bulky item collection means that certain items such as mattresses, appliances, furniture and electronics that cannot fit into your garbage can or that need special handling will be picked up by appointment by your garbage company.

Why Recycle?

Most older refrigerators, freezers, and air-conditioners contain ozone-depleting refrigerants (CFCs/Freon) that are regulated by law and must be removed by a professional. Each molecule of a CFC can destroy more than 100,000 molecules of the earth's protective ozone layer. Appliance recyclers capture CFCs and avoid releasing them into the air. Do not attempt to do this yourself.

Appliances are banned from disposal at County Refuse Disposal Sites. County Refuse Disposal sites offer appliance recycling for a fee. Fees are $30 per appliance that contains(ed) freon (e.g., refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners) and $10 per appliance without freon (e.g., clothes washers/dryers, hot water heaters, dehumidifiers, ovens, microwaves, stoves, trash compactors, dishwashers, oil-filled convection radiator heaters and residential furnaces).
